The Head of State, His Highness Tuimaleali’ifano Vaaletoa Sualauvi II and his Masiofo, Her Highness Fa’amausili Leinafo, welcomed a very special visitor at Moto’otua yesterday.
Their Highnesses welcomed Messianic Jewish leader, Pastor Benjamin Berger, who paid them a courtesy visit.
Pastor Berger, who arrived in Samoa on Saturday, is on a week-long visit where he is speaking to different leaders about the “glory of the Lord, the revelations” in relation to recent events regarding Israel.
The visit to the Head of State followed a prayer breakfast with Church and Government leaders at Taumeasina Island Resort.
At Moto’otua, Pastor Berger was accompanied by the Chairman of the Prayer for Israel Samoa (P.F.I.S.), Reverend Nu’uausala Siaosi and his wife Malu Siaosi.
The Head of State told his special guest he was delighted to welcome him to Samoa, a country that recently declared itself an official Christian state.
For the rest of his time in Samoa, Pastor Berger has meetings with different denominations set up including the Methodist Church, E.F.K.S, Assemblies of God and One in Christ.
He will also address the young people of Samoa during a Youth Rally being planned for 6.30pm Friday at the T.A.T.T.E. Convention Centre.
